Eielson Air Force Base opened its doors Tuesday to local, state and federal officials to give them a chance to see an F-35 fighter up close and to learn about its capabilities.

Alaskan Command

Alaskan Command officials say work is nearly done on an Environmental Impact Statement for a proposal to expand airspace over military training ranges and increase the number and types of exercises that will be conducted on those ranges. The document outlines the anticipated impacts of expanding the Joint Pacific-Alaska Range Complex.
